Putzmeister RS 850 Column Placing System

Category: Placing Booms

Separate Placing Booms are ideal for any multiple level concrete construction projects such as: Highrise Buildings, Parkades, Treatment Facilities, etc. Separate placing booms along with stationary concrete pumps have established themselves in highrise construction for many years as the answer dealing with congested sites that have limited limited access, maintaining construction schedules by freeing up valuable crane time on site, and as a safe alternative to placing large volumes of concrete at high production rates.

Please contact our Sales Department for more information on Separate Placing Booms.

SolidBaseThe RS 850 Tubular Column can be set up in several ways depending on the construction site.

  • Ballasted base -  the best option on a spacious site
  • Cruciform base with anchors - can be integrated in a climbing framework or slip-form
  • Compact base with a tie rod basket fixed to base - ideal for a congested job site

If a base plate and floor are already completed, a cruciform base is not needed. Instead, the tubular column is held with four base plates and floor corner brackets in the first ceiling. The brackets are significantly lighter and more compact than other ceiling frames.
